Making an urgent application

Applying for your e-visa Egypt well in time is highly recommended. The average delivery time is 10 days. In the application form, you can choose for your application to be processed urgently. The average delivery time for urgent applications is 5 days. Please note, however, that delivery times are not guaranteed. In case of a random application check, or unforeseen delays at the Egyptian immigration service, even urgent applications can suffer a delay. For example, the weeks leading up to Eid al-Fitr (the end of Ramadan) are always busy, often resulting in delays. To make sure you receive your e-visa in time, it is best to submit your application a few weeks before your departure. This will also save you the additional fee of € 17,50 that e-Visa.ie charges for an urgent application.

Submit a group application

Are you going on holiday to Egypt with your family? Please note that each traveller needs their own passport and also their own e-visa. This also applies to young children. You can submit a separate visa application for each traveller, but it is easier to make use of a group application. That way, you can apply for several Egypt e-visas at the same time. You can do this with the same application form. At the top of the form, you fill in the general data, such as address data and data about the trip. At the bottom of the form, you fill in the details of each traveller. You can add up to ten people to your application with one form.
